Yes, I'm now on my 26th week of pregnancy. I just checked my weight last night and I was shocked that I've gained several pounds. Blame it to the rice, lol!
I will be having a Congenital Anomaly Scan on Saturday, I'm sooooo excited because finally, we'll know if it's a boy or a girl. We've already thought of the name as well.
As for baby #2, here's what babycenter.com said:
The network of nerves in your baby's ears is better developed and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear both your voice and your partner's as you chat with each other. He's inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is essential for the development of his lungs. These so-called breathing movements are also good practice for when he's born and takes that first gulp of air. And he's continuing to put on baby fat. He now weighs about a pound and two-thirds and measures 14 inches (an English hothouse cucumber) from head to heel. If you're having a boy, his testicles are beginning to descend into his scrotum — a trip that will take about two to three days.
I'm starting also to buy baby items. I've already requested a friend who will be arriving from the US this December to buy me new sets of playtex ventaire and avent feeding bottles . The clothes, I already have some but I guess I have to buy additionals.
As I'm writing this post, baby#2 keeps on moving like an excited octopus inside my tummy. It makes me quite uneasy...some says it could be a boy hence the movements. How I wish...but we'll see this weekend. For now, I'm enjoying the feeling.
